Kilimanjaro Live Presents: Virgin Kids + Athens + Mandeville


Tickets - £5adv

Virgin Kids play frenetically energised rock‘n’roll that draws from sources such as post-punk and the “70s West Coast.

Originally started as the bedroom project of frontman Asher Preston, Virgin Kids were fully formed in late 2014 with the addition of childhood friend Paul Rosser and ex-Fawn Spots drummer Sean Hughes.

The band has been rigorously playing shows throughout the UK, supporting a number of influential garage artists including; Jacuzzi Boys, The Coathangers, Dirty Fences, and Kim and The Created. Their debut album Greasewheel is set for release on Burger Records (U.S) and Fluffer Records (U.K) on the 11th of March 2016.

Bird On The Wire Presents: Aidan Knight + Hannah Epperson


Tickets - £6.50adv

Aidan Knight released new album Each Other this January via Full Time Hobby.

Each Other was recorded at the Bathouse Studio, just outside of Kingston and home to Millhaven Maximum Security Prison. Aidan’s band sequestered themselves in the studio for over two weeks with producer Marcus Paquin (The National, Local Natives, Stars). The band and Paquin were meticulous with each song, piecing together the raw energy of the live show along with the layered textures that could only be captured in the studio. It’s hard to pin down the specific sounds that influence Aidan as Each Other possesses it’s own unique mood and atmosphere. Challenging yet comforting, a poignant album for our time, steeped in melancholy but with a brittle optimism and ultimately a joyful auditory experience for any true music fan.

Following his sold-out London show last year and recent tour supporting Villagers, the Canadian troubadour will return in June for a performance at Sebright Arms.

Kilimanjaro Live Presents: Alice Jemima

Alice Jemima

When 22-year-old Alice Jemima was 14 she and everyone else from her comprehensive school in Devon applied for compulsory work experience placements. While her friends were sent to work in retail or IT departments, Jemima followed her passion and got herself a ticket to the Glastonbury Festival instead. By this point Jemima had already taught herself the guitar and had started writing fully fledged songs, but the hands-on experience of soaking up a music festival cemented a desire that had always been there. “My mum was a violinist in a tango band and she used to take me along to festivals from when I was a baby,” Jemima says. “It's always been a part of my world.” Having recorded a host of songs in her bedroom on Garageband, and released a self-funded EP in 2012 to go along with the myriad Soundcloud uploads, Jemima's breakthrough arrived in 2014 when her sultry, enchanting cover of Blackstreet's No Diggity suddenly blazed its way to nearly 3 million plays. Now signed to Rob da Bank's Sunday Best label, and with a host of festival appearances under her belt, she's about to take her delicately haunting and emotional songs to the masses, starting with the lilting majesty of the Liquorice EP.

The Church Presents MIDNIGHT MASSIVE

The kind of church service your grandmother warned you about

This is Midnight Massive, the underground church where you can confess, be blessed and get undressed. Rejoice in the sounds of their soul-funk show "Oh My God! It's The Church", as they wash away those sins and pray to the party Gods that you soul will be saved for one last tune.

“Always known as one of the area’s best lyricists, with an ability to get right inside the heart of her characters and listeners, Martin has translated that emotion in a bigger rock sound.” – Bob Mersereau, CBC

Nova Scotia Singer-Songwriter Christina Martin’s musical journey has led to extended stays in Austin, Texas, as well as Germany, from where she has cultivated a substantial following across mainland Europe. Along the way, she has earned multiple East Coast and Music Nova Scotia Awards, had songs featured in television soundtracks, performed at Rolling Stone Weekender Festival in Germany, and for the Queen at Parliament Hill in Ottawa.

Christina will perform songs from her most recent release It’ll Be Alright, which won Pop Recording of the Year at the 2016 East Coast Music Awards. She will be accompanied by her guitar player, acclaimed Nova Scotia producer and musician, Dale Murray.

‘It’ll Be Alright,’ is Christina’s most accomplished and accessible album to date. Martin made a conscious effort not to be bound by the expectations of those who have categorized her in the past. Although she will never shed her more alt-country and Americana influences, ‘It’ll Be Alright’ utilizes far more pop and rock sonic textures, allowing Martin to explore the many sides of her musical personality.

“Worldly perspective has informed her new album, and it might be just the thing she needs to take her to the next level of great Canadian legendary singer-songwriters.”- Tom Power, CBC

“Rootsy East Coast songstress Christina Martin delivers another winner with her fifth album, It’ll Be Alright.” Kerry Doole, New Canadian Music

Symptomatic Presents: The Tourists + Nick Alsam + High Fever + Playing House


Tickets - £6adv

A blend of intricate guitar melodies, curvy art-funk bass lines and 80’s

synth leads, Tourists encapsulate modern post-punk revivalism with a

melodic, psychedelic spin.

The writing process began in 2012 when founding members Jamie Giles

(vocals/guitar), Scott Morton (drums) and Matthew White (bass) acquired

some basic recording equipment and produced the debut EP Fear Grows. The

lo-fi record – produced at home by Morton – was by no means perfect in

sound quality but succeeded in capturing an identity, one that still

resonates through the band’s sound today.

2013 saw the release of second EP Hidden Desires with label In At The Eye

Records. Singles from the EP We’ll Talk About It and Background became

instant hits, drawing praise from the likes of Janice Long (Radio 2) and

XFM. Soon after, Tourists were invited into the BBC Introducing in Devon

studio, becoming the first band to play a full set live on air.

After a quiet transitional year in the shadows and with the addition of

new members Lloyd Bastow (guitar) and Tom Wilkinson (synthesizer),

Tourists re-emerged in 2015 looking set to build on the success of

previous years. Latest single All We Do Is Pretend soon caught the eye of

key taste-makers CLASH, NOTION, The 405, A Music Blog Yeah and Inveterate,

with the band being tipped as ‘ones to watch’ on Huw Stephens’ BBC

Radio 1 show.

This year the band have been busy recording with producer James Bragg at

Middle Farm Studios in Devon and look set to release new single Cut and

Run this spring.


“The band’s forthcoming release All We Do Is Pretend has already seen

significant support from the likes of CLASH and The 405, with the band

tipped by XFM, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Introducing as ones to watch”


“A lush return, the jagged guitar lines are matched against gossamer

synths and vocals that betray a pop ambition” CLASH

Bird on The Wire Presents: Little Scream


Tickets - £7.50adv

When Laurel Sprengelmeyer began performing as Little Scream in 2008, she played her first shows in Montreal using only a battered Stratotone guitar, a cigarette amp, and a mic on the floor so her feet could serve as percussion. “That’s why I always wore high heels. They made the best stomping sounds.” Her debut LP, The Golden Record, was released in 2011, with Pitchfork calling it “a perfectly mixed bag of graceful folk, coiled pop, and expansive art rock” and NPR dubbing the record “absolutely captivating.” If that album was Little Scream’s searching, enchanting first step into the world, then this May’s release, Cult Following, is the badass landmark cementing her place there.

She began conceiving of Cult Following while visiting a friend in a small intentional community in northern Brazil that was on the verge of becoming a cult. The experience laid the groundwork for the album to flourish into a lush, expansive, retro-leaning gem that straddles intimate fragility with bombastic dancefloor-ready songs. Listening to it is like reading an epic novella—part fairy tale, part ecstasy, and part human folly. The album drops on Merge Records on May 8th.

They are known for their prolific recording habits and, prior to Clumsy Knot, released a number of EPs and homespun albums over the last few years.
